{Magical Moment} A "Princess" Bride

Today we're busy flying to Florida and, since it's Disney week, I thought I would take a little break from my Social Media Etiquette series (We'll tackle Twitter July 3rd!) to share with you one of the best things about a Disney vacation: Magical Moments.

A Magical Moment is a Disney experience to make a guest have a special memory from their trip. Magical Moments are spontaneous surprises and can happen to anyone at any time.

So, while I'm heading to the Most Magical Place on Earth, I thought I'd share this sweet Magical Moment to get you all in the Disney mood!

It's the one product every Momma need sitting on their kitchen counter: the perfect quick-cleaning spray. I recently fell in love with a product that gets literally any and all jobs done I want without killing me with harsh chemicals.

To prove its worth, I put together this little experiment to sway you over to the dark side!

{Food Crush} Bacon-Hazelnut Buttermilk Cupcakes

If you're anything like me, the title of these cupcakes alone was enough to make you want to start baking them, despite it being far too early in the morning, you're still in your robe and PJs, and you have somewhere to be in an hour.

I stumbled on this recipe from one of my favorite baking blogs Bakingdom and it was just too sweet to share! Plus, it has BACON... can anyone say "Father's Day Treats"?

{Pretty on Pinterest} Pinterest 101

We've all been guilty of them: those horrible little crimes of social media. If only there were some guide out there for new members of a social media page to learn the dos and don'ts of everything from Facebook to Pinterest, Twitter to Tumblr.

Well, for the next four weeks, I'm tackling this great task, presenting you with the ins and outs of four major social media sites; everything you need to know to make your various profiles professional, trendy, and accessible to others.

{Hoosier Momma Moment}: Baby Registries

Where has time flown by? It feels like only yesterday I was throwing up crawfish in New Orleans, seeing our baby squirm in my belly for the first time, and BAM just like that, it's been 16 weeks and we're preparing for our first shower in Florida at the end of the month.

So, if you're a first time Momma looking for a little guidance like I was and starting a registry is both exciting and terrifying: pour yourself a mocktail, grab a pen and take some notes because I'm about to share our experiences and what I wished I knew before diving head first.

{Pretty on Pinterest} Baby Showers

Sorry, I have baby on the brain. Whenever I see the words "Baby Shower" all I can think about is the wedding planner/nursery designer in the Father of the Bride series shouting "IZA BEBE SHRORER!"

Visit the Pinboard {here}

...Which I will undoubtedly be doing at my own showers...

Justin and I have our first shower at the end of the month, so naturally Pinterest has become my place to hoard ideas to casually pass on to my sister when she starts the planning for our much later shower.
